What are Amvic ICFs?

Amvic Building System first entered the insulated concrete form (ICF) industry in 1999 when it debuted at the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) show. Since then, Amvic has become an industry leader due to high quality, superior strength and ease of installation.

Amvic's 150,000 sq. ft manufacturing facility is located in Toronto, Ontario. The facility is equipped with state of the art machinery which ensures only the highest quality product is manufactured.

Amvic ICFs are designed with 2.5 inches of 1.5lb/cf density foam on each side of the form. The uniquely designed webs are also 6 inches on centre vs. 8 inches in many competing products. As a result of this powerful combination the Amvic ICF is the strongest on the market.

Amvic ICFs are the also easiest ICFs to install. They are reversible, lightweight and easy to cut and shape which significantly reduces labour costs during construction. Also, waste is reduced as almost all excess trimmings can be used, thus reducing the cost of additional blocks and waste disposal. Amvic also has a growing network of trained ICF installers and regularly conducts training sessions for builders and contractors. Training sessions cover topics including ICF installation, roof and floor connections, window and door insertion, exterior and interior finishing as well as provide an opportunity for question and answer.

Do not hesitate, contact Amvic today and ask for ICF!
